J. Cole Sees His CD for the First Time Onstage [Video]

J. Cole

After all the blood, sweat, and tears he put into making his album, imagine J. Cole’s surprise when a fan handed him a copy of the physical CD before he had even seen it. The Roc Nation rapper was performing in Scottsdale, Arizona, on Wednesday night when someone in the audience held up a copy of his debut Cole World: The Sideline Story, nearly a week before its release. Apparently some Target stores had prematurely put the album on shelves.

Despite the initial shock, Cole soaked up the surreal moment. “I don’t know how the fuck they got this shit, but this shit is real my ni**a,” he told the crowd as he held up the CD. “This shit is incredible for me to see right now. This a ni**a album. I don’t even have this, ni**a. I don’t know how you got this.”

The album, which officially arrives Tuesday, is already receiving positive reviews. “Bigger names in hip-hop have released albums this year, but few trump this debut,” writes Entertainment Weekly.

    I didn’t really know what all the hype was about with J. Cole but I heard some of the tracks and I am SOOOOOOO buying this album Tuesday. I was so impressed. It’s hard for me to get into a full rap album but I think this might be one I could listent to all the way through.

  20. damn

    cole world sucks… all that hype and then a cd like this… only MR nice watch & cant get enough go hard, the rest is the typical sh1t you hear on every damn album..

    FAIL!

    You like Mr. Nice Watch and Can’t get enough which are probably the worst and most commercial songs on the album, then hate the rest of the album. You already showed your taste is crappy by stating that and clearly a commercial music fan. Songs like Lost Ones, Rise and Shine,etc clearly trumps those tracks.

    [...] + How weird would it be for a fan to have your CD before you? Ask J. Cole. His debut CD, Cole World: The Sideline Story, isn’t out yet, but a fan handed him the real deal last night. He was stoked all the same: “This s*** is incredible for me to see right now.” (Rap-Up) [...]

  23. Bwahhaha...

    Why someone screamed out “I’m 7 months pregnant”? LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
